E visas allow qualified investors engaged in substantial trade with the U.S. or substantial investment in the U.S. to live, work and manage their business interests in America. Only residents of countries with a qualifying treaty with the U.S. are eligible to apply for and pursue those types of visas, including E-1 and E-2 visas.
While the U.S. welcomes eligible applicants under the investor and trader visa system, a successful application presents numerous challenges. For instance, if you wish to pursue an E-1 or E-2 visa, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requires that you prove that:
- You are a national of a country with which the U.S. has the requisite treaty
- Your activity and financial activities are of a substantial nature and meet trade and investment qualifications as defined by law and treaty
- Trade in goods or services must principally be between the United States and the treaty country of which you are a national
- In the event you are not the principal trader or investor, you must document your skills as an Essential Worker
If you wish to apply for an E-1 or E-2 visa and pursue the advantages that treaty investor and trader status brings, the Miami treaty investor and trader attorneys of The Katsman Law Firm P.A. can provide experienced and knowledgeable help throughout the entire immigration process.
You do not have to be involved in the day to day oversight of the business and can hire a professional management to oversee the operation in limited circumstances. Our lawyers can speak with you as it relates to an E-2 about the benefits and requirements associated with investing in commercial real estate and our experience helping people use this pathway to securing a non-immigrant E-2 visa.
We have handled Treaty Investor and Treaty Trader visas for individuals from many of the approximately 80 countries with qualifying treaties. To discuss your E-1 and E-2 visa questions with an experienced lawyer, contact one of our two offices.
